4 Mount Terrace, York
Guide Price £1,150,000
4 bedroom terraced house
Delightful period townhouse with gardens and garaging in one of York’s prettiest streets within walking distance of the city centre.
One of the city’s hidden townhouses, quietly tucked away from the noise and bustle of The Mount and Tadcaster Road. Mount Terrace lies within an exquisite row of early 19th century terraced townhouses, most set smartly behind front gardens with cast iron railings. No. 4 has been designed to accommodate a family with a large, open plan kitchen dining room, plenty of storage and glorious gardens. Sympathetically restored and updated recently, it is undoubtedly a fine example of a traditional York townhouse.

This townhouse has retained an abundance of fine period and character features including high ceilings and elegantly proportioned rooms as well as parquet flooring, open fireplaces, architrave, cornicing and ceiling rose, panelling, 12-pane sash windows and the original staircase with a polished handrail.
The contemporary kitchen is superbly designed and fitted with integrated appliances, a double butler sink and kitchen island with breakfast bar; it is open to the dining room with roof lantern above and French doors giving access to the sunny south facing courtyard. This is a family sized house with versatile accommodation that includes two/three beautifully proportioned reception rooms and three/four equally well-proportioned double bedrooms including the marvellous bedroom suite on the fourth floor.
The long front garden is enclosed by high mature hedging and set behind a low wall with stone gate posts encasing a wrought iron garden gate. This landscaped garden with ascending central steps flagged by clipped box hedging and abundant planting has a series of sunny terraces, ideal for sitting out. To the rear is a private and well screened courtyard garden that is elevated, south facing and skilfully designed for entertaining and al fresco dining. There is vehicular access to the single garage via Dalton Terrace with a pedestrian door linking to the rear courtyard.
Mount Terrace enjoys a most convenient city location, quietly located just south of the city walls and Micklegate Bar. The railway station and central York can easily be reached on foot and both Hob Moor and The Knavesmire, with its wide-open spaces and organised Park Run, lie a short walk to the north.
